Clandestine: Anomaly devs announce PS Vita support for ARG on Kickstarter

New, 2 comments

Clandestine: Anomaly, ZenFri's augmented reality game currently seeking funds on Kickstarter, is in development for PlayStation Vita, the developers announced today on the game's Kickstarter blog.

The developers describe the game on Kickstarter as a "reality expansion pack" that will use portable devices to augment reality with the game. You play as yourself in Clandestine: Anomaly, "an epic, story driven game that you play in your own neighborhood." The game was originally in development for iOS and Android devices.

Earlier this year, Sony announced that the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and PlayStation Mobile would support the Unity engine. Early this month, Sony announced that it would waive the publisher license fee for PlayStation Mobile this summer. The combination of those two things convinced Clandestine: Anomaly's developers to bring the game to the handheld.

"With Sony's recent announcements that they will be supporting the Unity3D engine on the Vita later this year, and that they've made it free for indies to develop and publish on their platform, it will be easier than ever to bring our game to even more fans," the blog post reads.

As of this writing, Clandestine: Anomaly has earned nearly $5,000 of its $50,000 goal with 14 days remaining. If funded, backers who pledge $25 or more will secure a digital copy of the game at its estimated release in Dec. 2013.
